What's a TCA? Fans of General Hospital outside the television community may or may not have heard that acronym. It stands for Television Critics Association. Several times a year, networks gather to promte new programming or shows of interest to eager television critics to gain (hopefully) positive press.
This year, ABC invited General Hospital to participate in the TCAs. That's the great news. I can't remember the last time a soap opera was represented by any of the networks at a TCA event. The fact that GH was there today is definitely a good sign that ABC is standing behind it's only remaining daytime drama, especially as the soap is celebrating it's 50th anniversary next year and is getting a new timeslot this fall. (1 PM ET; 2 PM Pacific).
